Our team is a disaster. I can't believe we are playing this bad, Jaguares was great this year and this should be the strongest squad of Argentina in history but somehow they look like idiots with the NT shirt on.

I love the amount of effort Asian countries have been putting into hosting events. During the Winter Olympics, Korea had their students do a bunch of traditional things for other countries too:

Heck I was almost in tears because they passionately learn others' national anthems to welcome every team

 

I wish I could join them

The South American Rugby Super League (yes it's rugby union) will debut in late February.

 

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Súper_Liga_Americana_de_Rugby_2020

 

The 6 teams will be Ceibos (Argentina), Corinhians (Brazil), Selknam (Chile), Cafeteros (Colombia), Olimpia (Paraguay), and Peñarol (Uruguay).

 

Ceibos is based in Córdoba. Selknam and Cafeteros are basically national teams. The other three are football clubs.

 

All teams but Cafeteros will play a double round robin. The top four teams will play semis and final, whereas the bottom ranked team will play Cafeteros.
